Sad news for 16 MMA fighters.
Former UFC Welterweight title challenger, and one of the top welterweights on the planet, Jon Fitch, now finds himself out of the UFC, after going 1-2-1 in his last four fights. But he’s not alone – MMA vets Matyushenko and Russow, Jacob Volkmann, former promising up-and-comers Che Mills, Paul Sass, and Terry Etim are now all cut from the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
This could be a very good news for Bellator MMA, who will be able to update their roster from top to bottom. More than anything, Jon Fitch vs. Ben Askren might finally happen, while Terry Etim and many others would be a fantastic addition to the evolving Spike TV product.
